Dr Varma described many areas of success of Maharishi's programmes in India in the past year, including in education, business, and media.

In business news, reported Dr Varma, the Maharishi Corporate Development Programme is running very successfully. So far 32 courses, which include instruction in Transcendental Meditation, have been completed with 735 participants. The participants are from the highest level of business in India, including chairmen, managing directors, and top-level executives of many successful companies.
